The Rossies are first out of the traps with their team for Sunday, which was named a short while ago. Here it is:
Roscommon (SFC v Mayo, 16/6/2013): Darren O’Malley (Michael Glavey’s); Neil Collins (St Kevin’s Castlerea), Niall Carty (Padraig Pearses), Seanie McDermott (Western Gaels); David Keenan (St Barry’s), Niall Daly (Padraig Pearses), Conor Daly (Padraig Pearses); Kevin Higgins (Western Gaels), Michael Finneran (St Dominic’s); Conor Devaney (Kilbride), Karol Mannion (St Brigid’s), Cathal Cregg (Western Gaels); Donal Smith (Boyle), Senan Kilbride (St Brigid’s), David O’Gara (Roscommon Gaels).
As this piece in The Score confirms, the team named above includes two championship debutants – goalkeeper Darren O’Malley and left half-back Conor Daly – with eleven of those named having also featured in the Connacht final against us two years ago. Ian Kilbride, Darragh Donnelly and Donal Keane are all confirmed absentees through injury with Donie Shine also missing out, though I’d say he’s likely to feature among the subs on the day.
As far as I know, we’re also due to name our team for Sunday at some point today but I’m not sure what time we’re likely to do so.
